Neither. Bob was giving it his all and i love his energy so i have no problems with it. Donna was doing what she was asked to do and she wasn't Janis. Funny thing about Donna and the PITB howl. I find that if i listen to a post-banshee PITB, i can still hear her at the time she should be there. Makes me think that the scream has become an essential part of the song in my mind or that i subconsciously like it.

Now if you had brought up the howler monkey impersonations during Estimated or the un-erotic moaning at the end of Scarlet, i would have answered they equally annoy me. Unlike the energy that Bob brings in those early NFAs, the Estimated howling brings nothing to the table and as I have said many times before, if i want to listen to a recording of a woman moaning to music from that era, i'll go find a copy of Donna Summer's Love To Love You Baby. That's some moaning....

i actually like a lot of donna's un erotic moaning during scarlet. Why can't any of us agree on anything?

Why do we have to?

Well if you like it, try this one on for size. It is my favorite:

cool thanks.

I really enjoy DP 31's scarlet, the lone scarlet from disc one that is. Never payed enough attention to the others but been meaning to find more good 74 scarlets.

I actually prefer Scarlet from '74 over the post-break S>F versions of the song. Yeah the transitions are great but it lost that bounce it had in '74.

"bounce" is a great description.

Tho i must say, some jams in b/t scarlet and fire are true magic. 1978-02-05 or 1978-12-31 would be great examples.
